Then they just need to go back to the original message and read it. Assuming 
of course that they have a decent MUA. Trying to follow a high-traffic 
mailing list like this one in a primitive MUA that doesn't support threading 
must be a real pain – and it would be a pain even if everybody would quote 
everything every time.

Someone who just joined the list may have to look in the archive if they 
really really want to read the original post, but that problem goes away 
after a week or two.
